Interesting Article

Further to the Tiger Woods thing, I thought this was an interesting viewpoint:

Tiger by the Tail

This whole Tiger Woods middle-of-the-night car crash incident has a lot of tongues wagging, a lot of it bullsh*t. But it is interesting. I'm sure there will be a lot of speculation by some very serious people, as well as "official" comments from the Tiger Woods camp. However, it's fun to guess, given the circumstances, isn't it? Like, what was he doing zooming out of his driveway at 2:30 in the morning? Was his wife really chasing him with a golf club, the same one used to apparently free him from the vehicle? Who knows... but let's get this over with quickly, so the golf world can get back to talking about golf.

Last day for the Course 2009

Well, this is it for 2009 - we pull the pins out tomorrow, and set up the "Temporaries": a 9-hole layout with the holes cut just below the greens.

A few groups are out today, taking advantage of the not-so-bad weather (although the fog is a little thick). Here's a group from the Orangeville area... thanks for the visit, guys!

Gary Player and a Funny Video

I was at the National Golf Course Owners Association conference last week in Vancouver, and had the privilege to meet Gary Player. Before his introduction, we were shown a very funny and clever video by a company called UgMo - they've developed a device that measures ground moisture levels and other factors, and works with the irrigation system to avoid unnecessary or over-watering. Anyways, I thought I'd post a link to the video, because it is quite hilarious.
By the way... Vancouver is a great city. It was our first visit.

Bless those Hearty Golfers!

In spite of the chilly breeze, there's about 20 golfers on the course today. We're still open here at Victoria Park East in Guelph - and it looks like the weekend promises to be fairly good weather-wise, so we'll stay open until Monday or Tuesday (Nov. 23 & 24) and pull the pins on Wednesday. That's a pretty good run for golf here in Southern Ontario.

Anyways, welcome to my blog. I know it seems silly to start a golf-themed one at the end of the season, but it will give me some time to practice and have it going full-bore by the time th 2010 season is ready.

Eventually, I'll put in some pictures and maybe a video or two (my kids will help me out with that!)

Any comments would be appreciated. Email me or check our website
